He booked a ton at like 26k a night. A whole different story. I know itís a great resort but when basically two nights of spg points could transfer to over 160k United points, most of us just wouldnít spend that much. But they are your points and if youíve got tons and can replenish them easily, why not? I burn a lot of Hilton points because Iím consistently earning more from work.  ;D

Don't think that's possible under the original glitch.

Is it possible to get a forecast for the SR Vommuli?

How many times have I answered this same question in this thread. I wonder.

ETA:

Answer, at least once:

Weather forecasts for places like MLE are notoriously inaccurate.

I'm hoping to go scuba diving but doesn't look like DW is going to. Diving solo strikes me as a terrible idea. Does the SR offer group dive tours that are still in the $70-80 range?

You never go solo. You'll go with one of their guides (and perhaps others as well).

Did you get certification there? I can do the academic and confined water portion at home, I'd have to do the open water portion in MLE. Concerned that if the open water certification takes more than a day to complete, I won't get a chance to do any real diving.

"There" SR? No.

"There" MLE? Yes, for my initial open-water cert.

You do real diving even on the exam. Because I did it all in MLE over 2-3 days, I don't recall how long it took just for open-water part.
